My friend Agnes created her own business called Herbologie, which is exactly what it sounds like: the study of herbs and botanicals. Something I know almost nothing about other than it makes my food taste yummier than without. But I don’t know the benefits behind them, where they come from, how to grow them, nor do I know ALL of herbs. Oregano’s a herb right? Much like the hot sauce commercial, I put that shit on everything.
On November 5th, my friend Rainette and I went to check out a launch party at Vacancy Hall for Hideout Distro. Vacancy Hall is located in the basement of the Mercer Warehouse on 104th downtown. If you haven’t been to Vacancy Hall, it’s a very cool venue that hosts local retail shops, artists and entrepreneurs. If you’re all about the shop local lifestyle, this is a place to check out. They are always taking in new local talents to showcase their goods, so you if you’re looking for a spot for your brand, check out their website for more details.
I recently went to Sanctuary, the long standing known-for-all-things-goth store located on Whyte Ave, to write about what they do, who they are, and how they sell everything from capes to Mala Beads to My Little Pony.
